It's that time of year again, we're listening to our favourite music whilst we're testing out iOS 10. We're pleased to say that Telldus Live! mobile works like a charm so we can focus on implementing new features.
We'd love to know what you think of the upcoming releases that Apple announced yesterday. Is there something you'd like us to implement? We'd like Apple watch and today widget support...we're working on that! Opening up Siri is great, but Apple decided to not support home automation commands outside of their homekit system. So we can't fix voice control for your home yet :(
We are very excited to announce a brand new feature for the Telldus Live! mobile app: Push Notifications as an action to an event! Initially this is available only to Pro members, though will be released to all users after the summer. To add a push notification to an event, visit http://live.telldus.com
Please contact our support if you encounter any issues or have questions about this or any other feature in our products.
We are happy to announce an update for the Telldus Live! mobile app! Among some of the new exciting features is translations in Swedish and Norwegian, an addition we know will please many of our users, more translations are coming. After feedback from our users we have extensively developed the dimmer slider. Test it by pressing and holding on a button for a dimmable device in the dashboard or device list.
In the recent releases, including this one, we have focused a lot on the connectivity between the app and your TellStick. Your feedback has been very valuable and we encourage you to continue to give feedback on the app and all of our products. It all comes down to the fact that we want to give you the best experience so that you can reliably and conveniently interact with your Smart Home. We are continually investigating ways to improve the reliability of the connection, even if you are at home, in your summer cottage or laying on the beach in the Bahamas, you can be in control.
Over the past 2 weeks we have released several updates to Telldus Live! mobile, our mobile applications. We are very pleased to now have support for live updating of sensor values and device states, plus we have fixed a number of bugs including the login problems on Android and the scrolling hang issue on iOS.
This is just the beginning though...
The apps are going to get a lot of love and attention over the coming weeks and months. Our focus initially has been to fix all the known bugs, but now and in the future we can focus more on new features and supporting more devices.
We'd like to answer some of the common questions that we receive regarding the app so as to give you an idea of our future plans.
Q: When will you support Windows Mobile?
A: We are looking into this at the moment, we don't currently have a release date but we'll hopefully have some more information soon. Also we've not forgotten Blackberry, we'll update this with the next major release.
Q: The app doesn't work on Android M...
A: We're aware of this issue and are testing a fix now. As this is a preview version of Andoid, it is expected there will be issues. We hope to release a fully tested working version before the public release of Android M though.
Q: Are you working on support for Apple Watch/Android Gear etc
A: Our focus right now will be on the main app to run on your mobile and tablet. We wish to support more devices, but we don't want to neglect the main app just to support a new device.
Q: Why doesn't the app do "this"?
A: We are trying to implement new features, and have our own growing wishlist, however we are very welcome to hear your ideas. Please let us know what you'd like by contacting us through the support system.
Finally, we understand the app still might not work for everyone. So if you're experiencing any problems, we want to fix this for you! So please get in contact with us through our support system.
